DAY 217 OF 2012
….ok so I took this a few years back…maybe 6  years ago….this was the last time I photographed this spot…it was when they were finishing those ugly new apartment buildings downtown…right on top of what used to be empty fields that I loved……anyway if you are into LA movies and culture you might recognize this spot as the gang hangout in the movie Colors….if you have not seen Colors, directed by Dennis Hopper, then you really need to….and the soundtrack is awesome too….this building was repainted the next week….a little piece of graffiti history gone…..its amazing that people still dont recognize the importance of keeping graffiti around…..imagine if cave people police cleaned  all the walls of the caves of the caveman ….or the markings from Egyptian tombs….things that are invaluable today……graffiti tells a story….its a history book being written piece by piece…..
